Hustle. We grabbed our notebooks, recording equipment and laptops and spent the afternoon reporting for our various tracks. News, Radio and Feature Stories, we ran here and there this afternoon to gather sound, get our interviews and find stories before tomorrow’s deadline. Some of us hit dead ends, and grins spread across several faces when a lead came through.
After supper, we submitted book reviews and scurried into the auditorium, filling the theater seats. The lights dimmed and our video projects appeared on the big screen. Hours of work in storytelling, camera angles and editing came to fruition. We took our minds off of our stories for a little while and voiced our praises and critiques of each short film. Another deadline met.
Tomorrow, we will pull out the perseverance we’ve been taught to use these two weeks and head toward the last deadline of WJI 2019.
